Outdoor Recreation

Enjoy the Great Outdoors in Streator!

We are located just 25 minutes from Starved Rock State Park, one of the most visited and popular State Park destinations in Illinois. The Streator area is also home to two public golf courses, and an impressive inventory of parks and open spaces—most of which have some unique connection to the history of Streator.        

Spend the day on the Vermilion River with Canoe the Vermilion. Hike at Spring Lake Park or the Greenway Trail. Hit the tees at one of our Golf Courses. Play with your kids in the splash pad at City Park. Go for a bike ride or play disc golf at Marilla Park. Run with the pack at the Lions Club dog park.


LaSalle County has many natural resources; rivers, canyons, prairie and forests combine with history to delight your senses. Experience Starved Rock State Park that was first explored by Joliet & Father Marquette in the 17th century to the sight of Cascade Falls at Matthiessen State Park or the sandstone bluffs on the Vermilion River near Streator where famous explorers and Indian Tribes once roamed, the area offers a host of outdoor activities. Discover the newly established Illinois River Road National Scenic Byway that winds its way through many communities of LaSalle County. Whether you enjoy hiking, picnicking, fishing, boating, horseback riding, canoeing, camping, or simply enjoying the scenery - LaSalle County has it all.
